On 9 June, the FAIR Office Austria, opens an external URL in a new window, which was developed and set up as part of the FAIR Data Austria, opens an external URL in a new window project, was officially opened in an online event with numerous presentations and participants. The topics of the presentations varied, focusing on European developments and the technical side of FAIR in addition to the activities of GO FAIR. Case studies were used to explain how the FAIR principles facilitate the handling of sensitive data and the cooperation between different institutions.
The launch event was a first step of FAIR Office Austria towards its self-set goals of networking stakeholders from research and service institutions and jointly advancing the implementation of the FAIR principles in Austria. The next milestone relates to the establishment of a closer link to the global GO FAIR initiative and is coming up soon: as of tomorrow, FAIR Office Austria will be the official GO FAIR National Support and Coordination Office for Austria.
